On the Road: Splurging on a Budget
When traveling long-term, you are usually watching every penny in your budget. But sometimes there are experiences or amenities that you are willing to splurge on like sailing in Europe or surfing lessons in Bali, or a 5 star hotel in Bangkok. And sometimes you just miss the most basic of creature comforts. So we asked “Traveling on a budget? What’s the one thing you did or would splurge on?” and you answered!
@EmilyRHarris – I’d splurge on going to see the one “must-see” natural/cultural attraction of each place I visited.
@EmilyRHarris – Sapa in Vietnam by overnight train from Hanoi – both beautiful and culturally fascinating.
@TransAmericas – SCUBA diving
@travoholic – Flights to the other side of the world to do fun things. Last year Haiti – Australia. This year Asia – London – Pakistan?
@solitarypanda – Sadly, shoes
@thom_sean – truly once in a lifetime stuff; helicopter over grand canyon, train from Beijing to Moscow etc
[singlepic=1749,300,,,right]Brian Peters – A fancy hotel room, at least for a few nights
Sarah Girard – A fitted backpack
Angela Petitt – A great authentic meal!
Martin Withington – A hot shower, with lots of water pressure and no time limit
Darren Wells – Private transport to go literally anywhere…
Charles J Forsythe – I think the nice hotel room. We’ve been traveling for 4 months and try to get a night or two in something decent once a month.
SO WHAT WOULD YOU SPLURGE ON?
